6:01 am
delaware when fierce flames destroy four homes. >> and the action cam is live on the developing story this morning. at least one person was killed and dozens of people were injured in a major pileup on the new jersey turnpike. you're looking at some of the southbound lanes there in cranbury middlesex county. this happened last night during that mix of rain, snow flurries and below freezing temperatures and part of that road still shut down right now. the the pileup involved more than 15 vehicles including four tractor-trailers, and we know at least one car ended up on fire. >> let's get you whether and traffic with david and karen. good morning. >> all right, guys, we're off to a cold start across the region. storm tracker 6 live double scan shows us that to the south of philadelphia and parts of delaware and south jersey there is still some lingering sleet and freezing rain highlighted in blue. cape may county beginning to clear a little bit but more is on the way across the bay and farther north in southeastern pennsylvania and elsewhere in new jersey and where it isn't currently looking at anything, we did have some earlier freezing rain and sleet and
6:02 am
you are going to look at a fresh coating of sleet across much of the region especially these counties highlighted in this winter weather advisory. the national weather service extended this advisory until 8 o'clock and i would expect icy conditions especially on sidewalks side streets and overpasses maybe some ramps as well. right up until 8 o'clock maybe even a little beyond that 'cause it's going to take a little while for that number to get up above freezing today. for the morning rush expect delays. you might have to take some time to scrape ice off your car windshield. driveways and sidewalks are slick but we can't rule out icy patches on roads as well. 28 degrees in philadelphia. everybody is in the 20's from north to south across the region and as we head into school to get that test going or whatever else you got to do at school or work look for to it improve as the day goes on. by noon we're up to 37 and there's your high at 3 o'clock, 40 degrees. karen, are you seeing any problems on the roads this morning? >> on the main roads, dave we're seeing them move pretty nicely. not seeing anyone slip and slide here on i-95 at allegheny.
6:03 am
i think the key is not to get overly confident and to take it slowly and expect you'll see some icy spots especially on the secondary roads. the worst of it might be getting to your car at this point on the driveways. be careful of slick spots. moving okay on 95. we had that big story on the new jersey turnpike. the action cam on the scene. this accident happened around 9 o'clock last night and it's still an issue this morning. we still see some vehicles out there on the scene. this is the new jersey turnpike southbound in cranbury township. southbound near the molly pitcher service area with that multi vehicle pileup, that fatal accident scene and this is that area where the outer lanes and the inner lanes are split so you've got the inner lanes at this point the car lanes are opened. the areas where the trucks go, the outer lanes, that is still blocked between exit nine and exit eight on the new jersey turnpike. let's take a look at some of the other areas around the region. 295 southbound past 73, we still have this accident where this vehicle went off the roadway. it's blocking the right lane and it's blocking the shoulder right here on 295. but overall you see that green
6:04 am
traffic flow, traffic still moving okay, just slow it down matt and tam and expect some of those icy spots. >> very good advice karen. let's take a look at some new weather video from berks county. in addition to ice concerns northern and western suburbs had a coating of snow overnight. crews were ready for this round of precipitation. they were sending those salt trucks out treating those already slushy roads and it could be worse. take a look at this. yet another winter storm has left new england just buried in snow. this is a look at manchester, new hampshire. a snow emergency is in effect there until this morning. highway crews say they've actually run out of room to push the snow. the steady run of winter blasts has already sucked up more than 70 percent of new hampshire's winter maintenance budget. >> in other news now and breaking a commercial flight from philadelphia was forced to make an emergency landing in houston late last night. the pilot somehow brought the plane down with broken landing gear. "action news" reporter erin o'hearn is lie in the satellite center with the video and details reporter:
6:05 am
incredible feat by that pilot and incredibly frightening moments for the 52 passengers and four crew members aboard that american airlines flight operated by u.s. airways. it originate in there philadelphia and was heading to houston texas. and it was expected to be about a 42 -- three hour 42 minute flight but the last 45 seconds likely the longest and most terrifying and this is exclusive video of that plane as it's making the emergency landing. and you can see it actually lands on its belly and the sparks flying from the bottom that of plane. the pilot had no choice because around 11 o'clock when he started descending, he realized that the landing gear was not dough employing. -- deploying. again you can see those sparks right there. once the plane landed passengers had to exit the aircraft using aircraft slides. one of the passengers on the plane said the pilot did circle the control tower a few times and then made a frightening announcement that
6:06 am
passengers should prepare for an emergency landing. >> he announced he was going make an emergency landing and that everybody would have to kind of brace on impact. he touched down. it was smooth, you know. we came to a stop. there were some sparks and things flying when i looked out the window and smoke and you could smell kind of burning rubber but we slid to a stop. as soon as we stopped, the fire department was out there. they sprayed everything with foam. we got out of the plane and jumped off the wing. >> reporter: now here is a shot of the plane nose down just after landing. one of the passengers on board had to be taken to a local hospital but the injuries to that passenger are apparently not serious according to an airline spokesperson. american airlines release add statement immediately after the emergency landing stating in part "american's primary concern at this time is for our passengers and crew. we're in contact with authorities and cooperating
6:07 am
with response efforts "obviously now american airlines is cooperating with ntsb which is investigating the incident. again one person injured on that flight but those injuries are not believed to be serious. we'll keep you updated throughout the morning on this investigation but if you think about the composure that the pilot and the crew members had to keep to ground these passengers safely, it's just incredible and a lot of lifesaving moves on their part. for now i'm erin o'hearn live in the sat center. back to you guys. >> clearly they did some great work. thank you erin. when you see breaking news share it with "action news." submit photos and videos to 6abc.com or e-mail them to this address breaking news at 6abc.com. >> yesterday was rough because we never got away from freezing. everything felt like a sheet of ice all day. tell me it will get better. >> we'll break up some of that ice. for now it's still in the 20's across the region. storm tracker 6 live double scan showing you we still do have a little bit of precipitation left over in parts of south jersey and delaware. this is changing to rain off
6:08 am
the coast but over land everywhere you see it it is falling as either freezing rain or sleet and that's because of those sub freezing temperatures at the surface. keep in mind, too that areas of southeastern pennsylvania and other parts of delaware and south jersey not seeing active precipitation right now. did see some in the overnight hours. it did fall as freezing rain and sleet and we have a new sheen of ice on a lot of sidewalks side streets and maybe some overpasses and ramps too so you want to be careful out there. stepping outside this morning we have cloudy skies of course. most of us not looking at active precipitation. there's wilmington on sky 6 but everybody's got to be careful of those icy patches beneath the feet and tires this morning. 28 degrees is your current temperature, winds out of the northeast at 14 miles per hour. in addition to having to be careful of where you step and where you put your tire this morning, you also have to bundle up also a you head outside because we have wind chills with that wind coming down out of the north-northeast in the teens everywhere across the region pretty much everywhere. feels like 17 in philadelphia right now. satellite shows you that that precipitation mainly center to the south. it is going to have a tendency to get on through areas of south jersey and delaware and

6:31 am
or freezing rain down south of dover and still pushing across the delaware bay toward cape may. areas to the north where there is no precipitation any longer still has some ice because overnight we did have some freezing rain and a new round of sleet. so, winter weather advisory still in effect until 8 o'clock this morning. i suppose they could drop it early but i think the idea is that they want to keep in it place even though the precipitation is done. because there is still some lingering icing on sidewalks side streets and on some ramps and overpasses too. expect delays for the morning commute. first of all as you step outside you're liable to have to chip ice off your windshield. driveways and sidewalks are going to be slick and i encountered some side streets on the way in in delaware county there were also somewhat icy. 28 degrees in philadelphia, 27 in allentown, 28 in millville. everybody still below freezing. it's a bit windy with wind chills in the teens right now. and as we roll through the day things do improve. by 8 o'clock we're still at 28. but by noon, 37. and your high today is going to be 40 and we should see some sunshine come back into play. karen, it's a morning to really watch it.
6:32 am
not only where you drive but where you step, right? >> that's absolutely right. you got to be careful just getting to your car because of the sidewalks and the driveways that are coated in ice and you can kind of see the icy spots right here. this is norristown montgomery county 202 at johnson highway. we're watching traffic. they seem to be moving slowly as you need to do especially when you're making those turns on kind of icy roads at this point but we're not watching anyone slipping and sliding. just give yourself lots of time before you hit that light. make sure you don't slide through any intersection. a water main break acie conditions here for sure on the boulevard and this is at grant avenue between conwell avenue and grant avenue. the inner drive is blocked in both directions because of crews just now responding to that water main break. here we are on i-95, this is your southbound traffic already jammed. i would expect it to be extra slow but again we're not really seeing anyone slipping or sliding. your main highways looking pretty good at this point. we had problems with septa's norristown high speedline.
6:33 am
expecting to resume service in about a half hour. all morning they had it shut down. norristown high speedline still shut down. expected to resume in about 30 minutes. i just got off the phone with police in salem county new jersey and they say the entire county is iced over. you really need to be careful. they're responding to about seven different accidents and you have to remember this is a county that's not that heavily populated. so for seven accidents already at 6:30 in the morning you know this is a big problem. one of the spots woodstown dare town road near avis mill road. they warn you everywhere throughout the region is iced over and you might remember on double scan this is one of the areas we have been showing you over the past hour where we saw that freezing rain move through and now you see the problem right here on the roads matt and tam. >> thank you karen. we want to keep talking about the situation up on the new jersey turnpike that we have been telling you about this morning. >> yeah you see there they're doing some work trying to clean things up at the scene where we still have some lane closures in north jersey. we know that one person was killed. we also have updated numbers on injuries. more than 70 people were hurt
6:34 am
in the massive wreck but again, they're trying to get things cleaned up there. 31 vehicles were involved including four tractor-trailers, two box trucks and a fully loaded bus. this happened in cranbury township middlesex county and this is what the scene looked like right after it happened last night. smoke was pouring from the pileup as a wintry mix of rain and snow was falling at the time. the exact cause of the crash remains under investigation but given what was happening with the weather, that is among the suspicions. >> so of course we have concerns going into this morning what your commute would be like today. mobile6 is out there on the blue route southbound and the good news especially pour main roads that were treated it looks as though things are looking pretty good. you can see traffic is moving there. but of course we continue to have concerns. there could be patches of black ice and certainly everything from your secondary roads to your own drive way just heading out to get into your own car or using the sidewalk it can be very slippery this morning. make sure you allow yourself

6:36 am
philadelphia and was heading to houston. it was supposed to be a three hour 42 minute flight but likely the last 45 seconds of that flight were the most terrifying and longest. this is a closer look at that plane the moment it made the emergency landing. you can see the pilot had to make a landing on the belly of the plane and that's where you can see the sparks coming up from the bottom of the aircraft. now, officials say that flight 1825 started descending around 11 o'clock and the pilot reported that he did not have landing gear, it wouldn't deploy, so he had no choice but to land on the belly that of plane. now, once the plane landed passengers had to exit the aircraft using aircraft light traffic volume one of -- aircraft slides. the pilot made the terrifying announcement that passengers will to prepare for an emergency landing. >> they were pretty professional about instructing everybody to kind of, you know, brace yourself on impact
6:37 am
and as we were landing the flight attendant was reinforcing that and kind of yelling instructions to the passengers. there were some people who i think were pretty worried but again everything went okay. >> reporter: and thank goodness for that. now here's a shot of the plane immediately after landing. you can see its nose is down. one of the passengers who was aboard that plane had to be taken to a local hospital. but that passenger's injuries are said to be minor. and that passenger is expected to be okay. american airlines released a statement immediately after the emergency landing stating in part "american's primary concern at this time is for our passengers and crew. we are in contact with authorities and cooperating with response efforts ." obviously now american airlines is cooperating with the ntsb which is investigating the incident. if we have any new information on that you can check it out on 6abc. one person hurt in that emergency landing and some life saving moves by that very
6:38 am
experienced and very poised pilot who helped get those passengers to safety. for now we're live in the satellite center erin o'hearn channel6 "action news. back to you. >> thanks so much. not much precipitation out there but karen is mentioning how salem county new jersey is iced all over the us. >> that was one of the spots where we did have some icing earlier in our broadcast at 4 o'clock we were showing you that that was one of the spots that was seeing some sleet. as you take a look at storm tracker 6 live double scan the area almost dry. down to the south there's a little bit of rain and sleet just clipping cape may but that's about it. the problem of course is that in the overnight hours everybody was still looking at some of this sleet and a little bit of light snow here and there and we do have a new round of icing under way across philadelphia. the southeastern pennsylvania suburbs and all the way down through delaware and south jersey. you really want to take it easy not only behind the wheel as there could be icy patches jut about anywhere at this point but -- and you can see why, we've got temperatures below freezing but we're also looking at sidewalks once again being a real problem. 28 in philadelphia right now

28 in wilmington, 27 in trenton. let's get you outside and conditions look kind of cloudy, don't they, but at least the clouds are a little higher than they were this time yesterday when it was a little soupy out there. main roads looking okay morning but i would be careful because of icy patches. we're looking at wind chills in the teens. it feels like it's 17 in philadelphia so not only are you watching out beneath your feet and the tires for ice this morning you're bundling up because it is uncomfortable out there. wide view on satellite and radar shows you the bulk of the precipitation is down by washington to our south. this stuff is really fading away over our southern tier and should be out of here over the next couple of hours. out to the west a lot of cloud cover but it's thin enough where we think it is going to break up and we should see the return of some sun today. it's also going to be milder this afternoon, clouds mixing with some sun in allentown breezy conditions but a high of 37 so above freezing for a few hours. down the shore we'll get to a high of 38, clouds mixing with some sun milder than yesterday and in philadelphia, clouds mixing with some
6:40 am
increased sunshine as the day goes on and a high of 40 degrees. it will be windy. winds dropping down out of the north after 12 to 25 miles per hour but at least we're above freezing. that's one of those days where if you have plans to get some stuff done you can wait until the afternoon you might want to because we still have the icy conditions around now sub freezing temperatures but this afternoon we get that high of 40 and it will feel more comfortable. there are a couple of other issues ahead in our seven-day forecast. first of all it's going to be cold and a little on the active side. thursday snow showers are possible with some light accumulations in the afternoon and evening. saturday afternoon and evening some more snow showers and we're waiting to see how this one gets together. hopefully it's light and it's also going to be a week that features a couple cold snaps. the second is going to be potentially the coldest air so far this year on sunday as we're only going to top out in the teens. so let's get you to the details. your seven-day from accuweather shows breezy and milder conditions today with that high of 40. increasing clouds on wednesday, a high of 39. and then 38 on thursday with more clouds around and temperatures falling in the
6:41 am
afternoon with the approach of an arctic boundary and then we get the snow showers that continue into the evening. we could see a couple inches accumulation in some spots there i think and then windy and colder on friday, 23 degrees. that will be a bitter one. on saturday, valentine's day back to 32. still cold. and in the afternoon on saturday and saturday evening there could be some snow showers and if you have plans to go out with your special someone, you want to keep your eyes on the forecast, maybe you postpone that date either to sunday or maybe do it friday night instead where you might have better conditions. on sunday windy and frigid, 19 is your high. and we're back up to the upper 20's for president's day. >> okay, thank you david. it is now 6:41 and we're following a breaking story out west. >> crews have brought down another old casino in las vegas. more of this brand new video coming up. karen. >> looking live here in doylestown bucks county. we could see the snow on some of the roads here so watch for that as you're headed out. this is 202 at 611 but on this ramp not seeing this guy slip or slide too much right there. we have a new issue on i-95 and some major icing problems
